Excellent title to match a fun shot! And I love the mismatch of this longhorned beast in a suburban neighborhood.

Comment by Yo_Spiff:
Udderly ridiculous! The housing development in the background is my only real nitpick with this. Guessing this is from someone in my own part of the country. A longhorn, plus houses similar to the ones near myself are the hints. Somewhere near Dallas or Austin, perhaps.

Comment by posthumous:
excellent example of Minimalism. The black areas form the room that you assume to be there. The sleeping person on the chair is really only there because of the title. Some kind of furniture, another window or french door, barely hinted at. And yet the room comes completely into our minds, particularly the mood of the room, the night, the sleep we sleep in that room.

All the quietude of a living area in the wee hours. Great.

Hello from the Critique Club,
The first thing that strikes me about the photo is your choice of shoes for the shot. They’re interesting looking, and have lots of detail to them, as well as being a bit different from the rest of the subjects in the challenge. In terms of the actual photo itself, it feels very flat to me, which is probably because of the aperture you used (16). Because everything is within almost the exact same amount of focus, the distance is compressed and the moccasins fail to pop from the blanket. The way the shadows are falling, I’m assuming that your flash was on camera too, which increases this flatness of lighting because the shadows on the subject are decreased from the viewer’s point of view. Foregoing the flash and using something to support your camera may have worked to your advantage (though I don’t know what your ambient lighting was). Compositionally, I wonder if centering things would have made things feel more natural, in order to include the blanket as a subject. If you wanted to emphasize the moccasins more instead, I’d consider shooting from a lower angle and placing one shoe angled in regard to the camera, and one on top of that facing with the beads toward the camera. The lower angle makes the blanket less distinguishable, and the lower angle will accentuate the features of the shoes. Shooting this next to a window with sunlight streaming through could work pretty well, I think.

Comment by Luci11e:
good mocs and a great effort; however the photo doesn't do much to show them off; maybe if the blanket had been drapped over something so the mocs were on sitting only on the white part. As it is here they blend in too much with the phoenix/firebird. The beadwork is prominent which is good but no other detail can be seen.
